Presenting the BULL ANT Forklift Setup: an unmistakably modern way to move about with freight, and designed with small urban warehouses in mind. The setup consists of two modular machines: the small and nimble ANT and the BULL power house.
Resupplying small city supermarkets comes with some reasonable hassle: freight pallets are sometimes too bulky to comfortably maneuver in between the aisles. Manual pallet trucks have restricted movement capabilities and offer no notable support in terms of weight distribution, ease of use and ergonomics. BULL ANT puts the controls back into your hands.
The small ANT-module slides under pallets and is capable of lifting any standard pallet off the ground. Then, it transports them to wherever you want. Lifted pallets can be pushed and directed into any direction. The module electrically assists any push- or stopping motion from the operator. Four ball wheels allow the operator to maneuver heavy bulked freight as if it were floating in the air. The ANT's computers will balance the load at all times, assist the user from the instance a human manipulation is felt and is able to simulate rectilinear movement.
As far as lifting and the autonomous moving of freight goes, the BULL-module is your ally. Any ANT-module can neatly slot into the docking station located between the BULL's arms. Now, the BULL ANT Setup can autonomously move freight over greater distances and lift bulk up to two meters. Each BULL comes with a handy remote control, for the operator to always be able to intervene when needed.
The BULL ANT Forklift Setup is designed with ergonomics and human interaction in mind. Having at least one of these modules around drastically improves the efficiency of your team and lowers physical stress.
It’s probably on the leading edge of what’s possible, say, 10 years out there. Some good thinking out there. Very interesting concept.
